|One wheel-pair option||Two wheel-pair option
|Stability||Fore and aft stability relies|
on organising pulk load to balance with, ideally, a small resultant positive load at the harness attachment point
|No need for fine balancing
|Shaft attachment||Must be fixed on top of|
pulk flange. NB. If switch to towing on snow rather than wheels, then a rope tow should be used, unless the standard hauling shaft poles and pulk-end attachments are available.
|Must pivot vertically, ie, must use standard shaft arrangement as if towing pulk without wheels
|Maximum load||50 Kgs||50 Kgs
|Steering||Free steering||Non steering - large turning circle, and possible strain on hauling shafts.
|Comfort||Pulk and it's load may|
tend to bounce if running or moving fast. Small load at hips.
|No bounce, no load on hips.
|Cost||Single wheels unit cost + possibly extra shaft items if towing without wheels.||Double wheels unit cost + standard hauling shaft.
|Equipment included in price below/extras||a) Pair of wheels, |
b) Beech laminated support.
c) Rigid shaft attachment tubes
d) Harness-end shaft tubes (half
of standard hauling shaft tubes.)
Possible extras if need to haul without wheels - ropes, or pulk end shaft tubes and pulk arms.
|a) Two pairs of wheels,
b) Beech laminated supports.
c) Standard hauling shaft and attachments.

HDPE pulk shell
Wheel system/shaft (this page), depending on consideration of table above.
Baseboard – necessary for support if one wheel pair option is preferred (but included in the price for this option). Baseboard not needed for two wheel pair option.
2. Probably you will also need
Full length sled bag
3. Very useful, but not essential
Set stuff sacs and Flight bag
Notes – One wheel-pair option only
When loading your pulk, there are two requirements –
1. The heaviest items should be placed directly over the wheels, and
2. The lighter items must be arranged so that the centre of gravity of the whole pulk and load is over the wheels. Then, when the hauling shaft is attached, there will be a small positive load, perhaps about 1 Kgs (2 lbs) at the harness.
For comfortable hauling, try loosening the harness belt when hauling on the flat or going up hill. This of course requires a full harness; a waist harness would fall down!
